Default Irony

Okay, some of you will have seen this, but I thought it was an interesting/entertaining article (rant?) on irony.

I can from experience that bothe the French and Germans have a fine grasp of rhetoric irony, at least. And that was in English. Being po-faced, I think irony is a general human talent. It's its employment that may be culturally dependant.
I have nothing of use to add.

blimey, there's a lot in there ... one read through doesn't do it justice. Good critique of the Alanis Morissette criticisms I have to say.
